    Help wholeheartedly

    1. Does she like to live independently by her own money she make or does she want her uncle to raise her?
    2. When she meets with difficulties or fails in work, her friends help her wholeheartedly and never turn blind eyes to her.

    Are these two sentences grammatical and natural in conversations?

    Thank you so much

    Not a teacher

    Not quite. Maybe:
    Does she prefer to live independently by earning her own money, or does she want her uncle to take care of her?

    When she meets with difficulties or fails at work, her friends help her good-heartedly and never turn a blind eye to her. They care for her wholeheartedly.

    Re: Help wholeheartedly

    If you turn a blind eye to somebody's faults, you overlook them. It is not appropriate in your sentence. You need something like 'look away', or 'pretend not to see' or just 'ignore'.

    Woop, that's true, missed that. Blind eye means you look right through faults, don't want that. )
